  5. Ha! just came upon this, the blue 1957 Volvo 444 is mine! …and in good company is see

  6. Pretty sure this is a 56. 55’s didn’t have teeth on the bumpers.

  7. Ah, excellent. Thanks enilde! I mostly piece the dates together through internet research, so any insight is always welcome. I’m making the change now.

  8. Hello,

    I came across this by accident while doing a google image search on Volvo 122s. I bought the white 122S that you have a picture of above. I bought it from ebay and the seller lied about the condition. He patched the rust you can see in the picture with bondo, but the real rust is in the floors. The person who sold the car to me was flipping it, not the owner who had been driving it.

    Does anyone know the history of that car? I’d love a bit of information on it if somebody knows the previous owner.
